LUFC Christiansen - It Was Two Points Dropped

LUFC Christiansen - It Was Two Points Dropped

Leeds United head coach Thomas Christiansen felt it was two points dropped after watching his side draw 0-0 with Nottingham Forest in the first game of 2018.

Having lost at Birmingham City on Saturday, Christiansen would have been hoping for a positive result to keep up their challenge for promotion but they couldn`t find a way to break the deadlock.

Pontus Jansson, Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez all had good chances to win the game for Leeds but they were denied good saves, goal line clearances and the crossbar and Christiansen felt they did enough to win the game.

'Clearly that's two points we've dropped," Christiansen told the BBC.

'We didn't deserve to win the game on Saturday (against Birmingham). We didn't deserve to get anything that day, but here we did almost everything to get the victory.

'It seemed like there was a wall inside their goal at times.

'We created some big opportunities to score, but on this day unfortunately we've only done enough to get the one point.'

Despite dropping five points in their last two games, Leeds remain in the play-off places although they have dropped down to sixth in the Championship table.

With the busy festive period now over, Leeds will concentrate on their FA Cup tie at Newport County on Sunday.
